Designed for intensive use, the Oleo-Mac GS-440 is built to withstand tough working conditions, and, with its expansive 40.5cm guide-bar; powerful petrol engine; and super-sharp chain, it's ready to take-on variety of commercial and larger-scale domestic woodcutting-tasks, such as hedge- and coppice-maintenance, lopping branches and felling medium-sized trees.
Exclusive to MowDirect, leading brand Oleo-Mac makes chainsaws that stand-out from other machines in the same class, thanks to cutting-edge innovation and superior build-quality.
For example, the 42.9cc (2.8hp) two-stroke motor is constructed to be hardwearing, with its forged- and machined-steel shaft and connecting-rod; needle bearings; and wear-resistant nickel-plated cylinder ensuring durability under the toughest of working conditions.
The engine is also highly fuel-efficient and emits far fewer polluting particles than other saws in its power-bracket. Starting is reliable, with an electronically-controlled digital coil and variable ignition allowing for a reduced fuel-burning-rate and headache-free starts.
Operator-comfort is well taken care of on the Oleo-Mac GS-440, with many features included to reduce fatigue, including the isolation of the engine for lower vibration-transference to the operator.
The oil-feed is both automatic and adjustable, allowing the operator to vary oil-flow according to the workload and wood-type. The automatic-setting ensures zero flow when idling so as to minimise mess and wastage.
The ergonomic handle incorporates the on/off switch, choke and half-throttle lever so control is straightforward. Balance and power-to-weight ratio are optimised, allowing for long periods of low-fatigue operation.
Keeping the chain at the right tension is a crucial element in maintenance - the lateral chain-tensioner on this model simplifies the process and eliminates any risk of contact with the chain.
Safety is always a premium consideration in chainsaw design, and this model has a fast-acting inertia-triggered chain-brake that reduces the danger of problems caused by kickback. The chain-brake handle also acts as a front hand-guard that protects the forward hand in the event of a chain derailment. It's worth mentioning that the operator should always be wearing safety gloves during use.
A special Ice Device system – whereby heated air from the cylinder can be taken-in to prevent ice forming on the carburettor – means this chainsaw can be used at sub-zero temperatures while continuing to start and work reliably.

Oleo Mac GS 440 Chainsaw

Oleo Mac GS 440 ChainsawReview by Arthur Bradshaw / (Posted on 13/04/2016)Have used the saw for approx. 3hrs use so not yet run in fully. Did a large multi stemmed crack willow and the saw performed really well and was fast cutting and powerful on the thinner stems, but I am hoping for an increase in power when it is fully run in and re-tuned. Lightweight very fast revving and easy to start, with good power for a saw of this size 42cc.

Good Saw for the MoneyReview by Si / (Posted on 19/09/2015)I bought the Oleo-Mac as a "home saw" and as an alternative to the more common budget brands. I've used a number of Husqvarna saws in the past, and the build quality of the Oleo-Mac seems on a par with those. It was easy to assemble and very easy to start first time. I've done some fairly heavy work with it and,so far, so good.
